David Starr removes controversial promo from Twitter due to pressure

David Starr, an independent wrestler, has been booked in a match against Ring of Honor world Champion, Jay Lethal in Israel. Having a shot at the Ring of Honor world title, and in a country of so much meaning to Starr isn’t a small deal, so he cut a promo.

David Starr’s Promo

David Starr has since been pressured into removing the video from Twitter by “the powers that be.”

Starr, after removing the video, tweeted the following:

“Last night, I posted a promo for my historic championship match on April 21st against Ring of Honor Champion Jay Lethal in Netanya Israel for Israeli Pro Wrestling Association

I have been asked by the powers that be to remove said promo.

Out of respect to IPWA, who have already paid for Jay’s expensive flight & accommodation, I will comply.

My complying with this request is not an admission of wrongdoing or a retraction. I stand by my entire statement and do not regret any of my actions regarding this subject.

Special thank you to James Musselwhite, Gery Roif and “Dennis.”

Sincerely,

David Starr

I have reached out to ROH but am still awaiting a response and will follow up when of if I receive one.
